i wake in the morning and i step outside

I’m listening to my 4&5 star songs playlist on my iPod lately, on shuffle — and this afternoon on the way home, it threw up a slice of my teenage years. 4 Non-Blondes’ “What’s Going On” followed by Dog’s Eye View’s “Everything Falls Apart”. (It followed those with Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova doing “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere”, which is decidedly not my teenage years.)

Since I didn’t have anything else I’d intended to post today, those two songs sent me home looking for a photo of Holy Ghost Tent Revival to post. Which doesn’t make much sense, really, unless you know that they used to cover it. Surprisingly well, actually — Stephen doesn’t quite have the vocal power that the lead singer from 4 Non-Blondes did, but they did it in their own bluegrass-ska-Beatles-thrashcore style, and I always enjoyed it.

Haven’t heard it live in well over a year, but I think of that cover fondly whenever I hear the original. Which I still love, all these years later, for what it’s worth.
